Blaze damages garage at auto financing firm

A fire in the garage of an East Toledo auto financing firm yesterday evening caused an estimated $100,000 damage but no injuries, authorities said.

The single-story brick garage attached to Nationwide Auto Finance, 1506 Woodville Rd., caught fire about 6:30 p.m. Firefighters were able to contain the flames to the three-car garage, which had no vehicles inside, Battalion Fire Chief Brian Byrd said.

Nationwide s adjacent two-story office building sustained substantial smoke damage, the chief added.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
